Sponsor contact is working.

The StopRush Project has announced that over 2,200 sponsors have pulled ads from Limbaugh's show, via documented messages/statements. Many other sponsors have left his show quietly, bringing the actual amount of sponsors who have left, to a higher, unknown total.

FlushRush, StopRush.net, this Petition, DK Diaries, and numerous activist groups, are causing an immense impact on the demise of Limbaugh's hate-filled show. We can all join the fight. This Petition is sent to 30+ sponsors at a time and lists ways to get involved. http://www.change.org/...

How does Limbaugh stay afloat, given this mass sponsor exodus? It's now been reported that FreedomWorks, linked to The Tea Party and Super PAC, has been picking up much of the slack for Rush, after his loss of advertisers/revenue. Adding insult to injury, some sponsors say they have been offered free radio spots on Limbaugh's show, and turned them down. Why would a company want to risk permanent damage to their name and reputation, in the minds of millions of consumers, by aligning with Rush Limbaugh?

Rush, you just don't get to call Sandra Fluke, or any woman, a 'slut' and 'prostitute' on our public airways - and get away with it.
Well, it was a little more than calling her a 'slut' and 'prostitute'...
This boycott is gaining momentum daily. Sponsors, listeners, and now, much of the Republican Party, are distancing themselves from Rush. His ship is sinking, and with him he's taking his lies, misogyny, racism, gay hatred, and bigotry. The people are speaking, sponsors are listening, and we are witnessing the true beauty and essence of free speech.

Thank you, Richard Myers. We are finishing this work. Rest in peace.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
